Classes for You

Classes for You

Along with home visits, MOMS Orange County offers you free classes throughout Orange County where you can meet other moms and dads, make friends, and learn together about childbirth, caring for a newborn, and helping your baby grow strong, bright and happy.

The workshop for new dads, Taller Para Papás, is for men only.  Experienced dads are there showing how to diaper, bathe, hold and comfort a crying baby.

Once your baby is 3 months old, enjoy fun activities together in class, learn how to help your baby grow strong, and meet other new parents with babies the same age.

Classes are in Spanish, English, or Vietnamese.
